Description: The 1680 Red Submariner was the earliest dated Submariner reference. These early “red-Subs” highlighted by their iconic red text, are highly sought after. This variant is a MK5 “ft-first” variant and is correct to the watch. The lume has a distinguished coloring that contrasts beautifully against the red text and black dial. This watch was sourced from Japan and comes with Japanese Rolex service papers.
Dial: Original MKV dial
Insert: Black MK3 Insert
Hands: Original tritium hands
Case: Excellent condition case that may have been lightly polished in the past but retains the original fat bevels on the lugs.
